Valentine's Day Part I






In case you don't cruise down 17th Street in Costa Mesa/Newport area your missing out. They have great restaurants up and down the street but a little bakery is what holds a special place in my heart.

SusieCakes!
They have locations in LA and one here off of Westcliff and Irvine Avenue in Newport Beach. Just a hop skip and a jump from my house.

I thought that they would be crowed with lots of people getting their sweethearts some treats but when I first walked in, they weren't that busy but when I walked out they had a long line. But the staff was still very helpful and sweet! The young lady that helped me out even offered to tie up my boxes with cute SusieCakes ribbon. Nice touch! And I am a sucker for good packaging so I loved that.

I got two HUGE chocolate covered strawberries and two cupcakes for $14. Yes, that sounds pricey, but that's the going rate around the OC for a gourmet cupcake, $3. The strawberries had a thick layer of chocolate and the actual strawberries were juicy and sweet. The cake on the cupcake was moist and just sweet enough to pair with the cream cheese.

Not cheap! But worth the splurge! I was still craving that cream cheese frosting on the red velvet for two days! And the frosting even comes on the inside of the cupcakes. I can't vouch for the chocolate that was HungryPoppa's treats.

On my next treat there I wanna try their sour cream cheesecake. YUM!

Then on to Memphis in Costa Mesa for our dinner...
